The lightweight portable elderly bathtubs are one of the most useful pieces of furniture you can buy for your bathroom. These chairs allow you to take a shower rather than a bath without any third party assistance. This means that you can enjoy a shower in peace and privacy and can mean that far from being an ordeal bathing can become a pleasure once more.
Probably the cheapest type of shower chair is the simple rigid seat that is lightweight and portable. The chair is most often made from tough resin that is strong, resilient and very light. This lightness means that the chair is also very maneuverable and portable.
The small elderly bathtubs take up less room horizontally and are a great option in a small bathroom. Soaking tubs today are usually set on a pedestal where the sides of the tub are the traditional height but the bottom of the tub is sunken into the pedestal and go all the way through to the floor. This allows for the depth while allowing bathers to enter and exit with ease in a small bathtub. Shower stalls do not provide the same comfort.
Older people, the disabled or anyone who wants an easy and safe way to enter a soaking tub, often choose the elderly bathtubs. Similar to the soaking tubs mentioned above, the walk in tub has a hinged door with a lock. Bathers enter the tub by walking through the waist high door, then sitting in the tub. The fear of slipping while getting in and out of the tub is dramatically diminished. One disadvantage to this tub is that the bather must be in the tub to fill it and must wait there for it to fill.
By using the lightweight portable fold up elderly bathtubs you can get the benefit of the seat in the shower without the inconvenience, especially to those who do not need a chair, of having it constantly in the way.
Remember, having elderly bathtubs can restore some dignity to the process of bathing and as a result can become an essential piece of bathroom furniture. But it does not necessarily need to be intrusive to your use of the bathroom as there are many models of shower chair which are portable and can fold up and be put out the way when not in use.
